Herbalife and Brazilian Government Sign Agreement on Science without Borders Program

11:30 EST Wednesday, November 06, 2013

LOS ANGELES (Business Wire) -- Aspiring science students got good news today as Herbalife (NYSE: HLF), a global nutrition company, announced a partnership with the Brazilian government's “Science without Borders” program, which will co-fund Ph.D. level student exchanges in the fields of biology, biomedical sciences and health, biotechnology, nutrition, food science and engineering.

The program is a joint initiative promoted by the Brazilian Ministry of Science, Innovation and Technology (MCTI) and the Ministry of Education (MEC) through their supporting organizations including the National Board for Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq), and the Coordination for Improvement of Higher Education Personnel (CAPES), the main funding agencies in Brazil.

The agreement will co-fund one of the program's students in Brazil to conduct part of their Ph.D. work at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), where they will study under the guidance of faculty in the UCLA Center for Human Nutrition.

Herbalife is committed to furthering knowledge and understanding of nutrition science, and in 2010 launched the Herbalife Nutrition Institute (www.herbalifenutritioninstitute.com), an online resource for nutrition information.
